Statewide Discussion:

No fire control issues anticipated.

A wintry mix of precipitation is expected to set back fire danger this week. Cold temperatures and weekend precipitation combined with another forecast round of potential snow later in the week will limit fuel availability.

We will issue an updated Oklahoma Wildfire Situation Report when conditions warrant.

Drive safely!

Remember… ONLY YOU can prevent wildfires! Enjoy Oklahoma’s wildlands responsibly.

Report any suspicious wildland fire activity on the Arson Tip Line: 1-866-662-7766 (1-866-NO ARSON).
